Hi, I am 35 almost 36 wks pregnant and had a small bleed on Tuesday morning - phoned the maternity unit who told me to ring again if got worse/any pains. However, all stopped so didn't ring again. Today and yesterday I have had a browny discharge (ugh sorry). I haven't contacted the hosp but wondered if anyone had this or knows whether it's a sign that the bub may come early?? There isn't much and it definately isn't a 'show'; no mucus plug. I didn't have it with my first child - also no pains. Any thoughts? Thanks.
Brown blood meens old blood maybe left over from tuesday. I bled through out both of my pregnancies and was told not to worry about brown blood but if blood is fresh get it checked out, also bleeding in late pegnancy is more common and not as worrying as in early pregnancy but if you are worried get it checked out.
ooo thanks girls.
Crumbs SlightlyMadSpider, hope everything was ok 26 + 6 is jolly early.
After the bleed on Tues I rushed off to the chemist to get a few bits for my hospital bag, then have rather neglected to put it together, perhaps I should get a wriggle on and get a few things ready just in case!
Yes - they had some time in NICU & SCBU. Came home just before due date. Perfect now. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone, was stressful at the tie but the longterm outcome was no different to giving birth at 40wks fortunately.
Oh and I am sure everything will be fine for you - whatever happens. Although not necessarily the norm I know 34/35wk triplets where one of hte babies went home with mum after a week on postnatal ward. The other 2 stayed 1-2wks on SCBU.
